Class Catch- up!

The gorgeous ladies in my Baltimore Album class at

The Sewing Bee Cafe have been busy

completing their blocks before the next class.

Looking forward to seeing all of their blocks come

together in the next couple of months.

 

 

As have the ladies in my Primrose Manor class,

also at The Sewing Bee Cafe. I love that there is such

diversity of fabrics in both classes.

Playing Catch-up!

Lately I’ve been a slack posting on my blog.

Thinking that I had posted on Instagram as well as my blog,

but actually only posting on Instagram.

Over the next few days (or weeks) I will

endeavour to catch up with all that’s been happening.

 

 

I’m thrilled and delighted to receive first prize for my Primrose Manor,

at Victorian Quilters Showcase at the Melbourne Quilt and Craft Fair.

 

 

Some closeups of the 3d flowers, gorgeous fabrics and quilting.

 

 

Congratulations to all who entered theirs quilts into Showcase.

You are all winners!

Stitching Day/Sewing Bee Cafe!

On a cold winters day we set up

 for the stitching day with The Sewing Bee Cafe.

Project for the day was my Clementine bag available in 2 colourways.

No time for me to take pics during the day,

these next pics are courtesy of The Sewing Bee Cafe.

All of these lovely ladies busy with

English Paper Piecing and making 3D flowers.

 

 

 

 

 

 

A very generous gift of this bundle of fabrics,

matches perfectly with others from my stash.

Thank you to every one who attended and

Debbie & Sonia for making this a fun memorable day.

Easter weekend!

 

Easter on the Ninety Mile Beach this year started

with some not so good weather, overcast, windy

and rough seas. Although we love this beach

in all weather.

 

What a difference a day makes,

clear skies, calm water and not another person in sight.

 

A visit to the newly opened

Lily Lane Too was in order to purchase some needed supplies.


 

 

To complete my stack of stars.

Yesterday summer storms rolled in after temperatures of 38°c. (100°f)

This was the view from the road as we raced over to the beach for more pics.

Looks impressive and makes our beach look very tropical,

but not a lot of rain for us compared to other places.

Decisions & Choices!

Before I get left behind too far with the mystery quilt which is already

at the 2nd week, I had to decide on fabrics.

This year I really wanted to use something different from the suggested colours.

Finally I am going with this as my constant

and I should have enough if I want to use this for the binding

depending how big it ends up,

as for the remaining fabric selection they will be chosen as needed.

I’ll spend a few hours this afternoon stitching these units together

and hopefully some of the four patch from week one.

Using my trusty little Husqvarna from the seventies.
